Man Utd plan move for Leeds starlet

United boss Louis van Gaal has sent his scouts to watch the defender in action several times, according to the Daily Star.

Reports claim Van Gaal is considering making a bid for the 21-year-old defender.

Taylor has been hailed as one of the brightest prospects outside the Premier League.

Luke Shaw’s injury could see United test Leeds’ resolve with a £4million bid for Taylor when the transfer window re-opens in January.
